Then again, as harsh as we might be towards him, TC ain't no pushover and will come back stronger than ever..... no matter his posts make sense or not.
It did cross my mind that, in that very situation I might be allowed to achieve minimum (within my ability and strength). In some situation, we might just feel helpless.The situation is a pretty hypothetical one, and no one can know for certain how they would react if they were ever in such a situation. Even if you picked one or the other now, if you were ever in that situation, your reaction may be quite different.
I began to slingshot at his butt when he harshly commented on Pemberly's choice.The only beef I have with TC's reasoning is that he is referencing the Canadian law too much - how you choose in this situation should depend on your own moral intuitions, not what's legal or not (since the law is not always an indicator of moral actions). Also, I'm not fond of him judging others for choosing otherwise.
